Patty Cakes is a cottage business open to the public by appointment only. Business hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturdays are usually reserved for cake deliveries during the busy wedding season. We will not be available for cake consultations for dates on which we have weddings as we must devote our time to the wedding(s) of the day. If you call and we do not answer, please leave a message. We may be meeting with a customer or delivering a cake! Patty Cakes is closed on Sunday and Monday.
Patty Cakes is privileged to be the preferred wedding cake vendor for three great area venues: Cedarwood in Nashville, and Epic Event Centre and Rock Creek Farm in Gallatin. These venues offer all-inclusive packages which include a wedding cake from Patty Cakes. Because of our commitment to these venues, we will be limited in what we are able to do outside of that obligation, so please call as much in advance of your wedding date as possible, for we do book up early--especially for the busy wedding months.
Patty Cakes is fully licensed, permitted and insured.
Our greatest desire is to make the wedding cake of your dreams. We shop personally for the finest, freshest ingredients to make our cakes not only look good on the outside but also taste great. We prefer to use local sources for ingredients when possible--even sometimes picking our own fresh fruit! We have time-tested favorite recipes but are always willing to try something new. If you do not see your favorite flavor on our list, please ask. Some of our most popular flavors have resulted from a new request. We can experiment and come up with a new recipe on our own, or if you have a favorite you'd like to share, we will happily use it!
Our promise to you: Every customer is important to us. We strive to do our very best on every cake or other dessert we make. Often, we turn down new business to make sure we have time to do our best on what we already have promised!
Patty's mother was a home economics teacher who taught her to bake at an early age. Patty took cake decorating classes in 1979 and began sharing her creations with friends at work. Those friends soon began requesting birthday, anniversary, wedding and other speciatly cakes and Patty operated her business part-time while pursuing other career goals full-time.
After much encouragement from customers, Patty decided in 2002 to operate Patty Cakes full-time. Patty now has more than 35 years' experience baking wedding cakes!
